The vast majority of land is dense, subtropical jungle.  Surrounded by pristine white beaches and the beautiful turquoise-blue water of the Mexican Caribbean, Hotel Cozumel & Resort provides the ideal combination of fun and relaxation.  A unique doorway to a mystical relationship with Cozumel's ancient Mayan past and modern-day adventure and hospitality.
